We expect a push, from the California-based National Popular Vote office, in Texas this year!
Texas is known as a key player in Presidential politics. Because of its size, it is always a major prize for Presidential candidates - AND for the promoters of the National Popular Vote scheme! We believe that Texas will be on the NPVIC targeting radar in 2021 as the Premiere State for them to capture.
Because of Texas' current State government make-up and the pretty strong feelings independence and States Rights believed in by most Texans, we feel that Texas is at comparatively Low Risk for joining the dangerous NPVIC collusion contract.
